The Hope: A Novel

The Hope - Herman Wouk the recapture of jerusalem was awesome - even knowing the outcome in advance (this is historical fiction) it was really moving to read the reactions of soldiers and govt officials going to the holy sites.also, wouk did an excellent job of not being anti-arab in his telling. the story was definitely from the israeli's perspective, but he was respectful of the arabs.
